What’s up fellow geeks! I’m AB and I’m as passionate a pro wrestling fan as you’ll find. I’ve been watching wrestling for 19 years and it’s my absolute favorite form of entertainment. I have a podcast called That Wrestling Pod, and I feel like I bring a fresh and positive perspective on all things professional wrestling. In addition to wrestling, I’m a huge movie buff, a die hard Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bulls fan, I love all kinds of music and I’ve been known to dabble on some PS4. I feel like I fit right in here on Geek Vibes Nation, and I’m excited to contribute to a world of fellow Geeks. You can follow me on Twitter @ThatWrestlePod and can also find me on Facebook under That Wrestling Pod. Keep on keepin on!
